Back to the vet again :(

Poor Tigger, tomorrow first thing in the morning I have to rush him to the vet. Looks like he is blocking again.
I have an issue, this is the 3rd time, each time he is ok for 6 months, then blocks again. I tried the vet food they give, both kinds, all we got was major sickness, vomiting, and the runs. I put him on uretic, he is fine for 6 months then downhill again.
Is there some other food I can try . Right now he did not eat, which for him I know is a major sign.

Yup, wet food. Grain-free, such as Wellness, Innova Evo, Nature's Variety Instinct, By Nature Organics, Ziwipeak,..... Completely eliminate all dry food from Tigger's diet or this is going to keep happening. If he is really blocked, I have to say that he should be going to the emergency room tonight.

Sad news

RottieLover is presently grieving the loss of her beautiful baby. She asked me to advise you all as she cannot bring herself at this time to post. As we can all understand her feelings of loss, she may need a little time to absorb this as it was very unexpected.

Last night she rushed him to the emergency clinic. He was suffering great pain and it was suggested to let him rest.

To our dear friend RottieLover - find peace. My deepest condolences.

RIP little man. May you run pain free and know that your soul lives on to comfort our friend in her time of need.
